Before I get into this Blog, I am 100 percent excluding California Adventure from this discussion these two parks.
Disneyland. The happiest place on earth. Universal Studios theme park, the little brother looking up to Disneyland. This is the narrative we have been told all our lives and it's easy to beilieve. You walk in and there is an air of magic to the place, the grand entrances which lead to all the different themes of the park. It is all very flashy, but if you get down to the nitty gritty, there is maybe three or four actual good rides. Space mountain, Matterhorn, Pirates/Indian jones(there both the same shit), and that buzz light year ride( the score of which has direct correlation to your manliness.) Outside of that, it is a bunch of outdated rides that are supposed to conjure a sense of nostalgia that simply does not apply to younger generations.
On on the other side you have universal, who just proved they are staying with the times by adding a Harry Potter land realistic enough to feel as if you are in the books, a downtown Springfield (Simpson's) alongside an array of other rides that create wonder and excitement for those going through them. While universal does not have the fireworks and all the grandeur of a Disney park, the benefits of the rides far outweighs Disney which creates a landslide victory for universal.
views are all my own.
Everything you need to know about the yay.
